Yes the dark style is now live. I worked on it for 2 days straight so I have you covered. Wasn't exactly sure how long it was going to take is why I said 2 weeks.

Though things are looking perfect on my end for both styles. If you encounter any bugs in the style feel free to point them out for a fix. That helps a lot. So far I believe it's right where it needs to be.

Dark/Light switch added to the right of the navigation bar near alerts. To switch between styles simply click the moon if on light and the same button which is a light bulb on dark.

Still feels a little bright to me for a dark style? ..or is it just me? :LOL:

PS. If you toggle the BB code on the editor, the text is pretty difficult to see.

I don't see anything wrong with the brightness personally but I did fix the bb code toggle issue. That's something that was hidden quite nicely so congrats on finding the issue before anyone else did. Not exactly sure how you found that. Way to go. Could the style be darker, I suppose so but I think it's good in my book since the design was meant to be a multi-color flat one. Thanks though :D

I made the dark theme a bit darker on forum sections and the body background as well. This should suffice so that it's not overly light. Also @Laifot that's good. I think the site was meant to look like this. I remember that green theme we had in the past but it wasn't as professional. This time it's perfect.

Style is good but I'm personally not a fan of the font used for the nav bar.

That's actually my favorite feature so it won't be going anywhere. Thankfully it's only used in the navigation and footer. That type of font is specifically meant for that purpose. It doesn't look good anywhere else. 2 other fonts are used. Roboto is used for forum category headers as well as sidebar headers and Nato Sans is used everywhere else but the post areas.

I already made it darker. It's not going to get any darker. I appreciate your input however.

If the style got any darker, you might as well use #000000. It's plenty dark how it is now.

I actually agree with that. Though at the time @Nerdface has mentioned it I believe it could of been touched up a bit as I did shortly after. He probably was referring to the forum sections a bit too light at first. I touched that and the body background up a bit.

It looks much better now bud, not as harsh on the eyes.

For what it's worth, the light style is also growing on me now I've been on the forums a bit more.. (y)
